romney became the fifth of the last six republican presidential nominees to fail to win the popular vote. last week he told a meeting of party conservatives that he fell short. >> as someone who just lost the last election i'm probably not in the best position to chart the course for the next one. >> ifill: romney's defeat has inspired much republican soul searching. today party chairman reince priebus unveiled his solution. >> we want to build our party. we want to do it with bold strokes to show we're up to the challenge and we're done with business as usual. >> ifill: the 98-page report detailed the party's failures in 2012. >> as it makes clear, there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> ifill: called the growth and opportunity project or g.o.p., the report is unsparingly self-critical, conceding among other things that the party is increasingly seen as the province
of massage the message. example, if you talk to naacp like mitt romney did in 2012, you don't do this. >> i'll eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find and that includes obama care and i'm going to work to -- >> joining me now, democratic strategist robert zimmerman and cnn contributor anna nevaro. thank you for being with us. i want to go back to that event at naacp in 2012. >> why, carol? >> i was intrigued with the new massaging of the message. i thought we were friends. >> i'm sorry. i have to ask you this. how could mitt romney have better put that and make the audience a little more receptive to what he had to say? >> carol, mitt romney who? look, he's yesterday's news. he's not the candidate anymore. he himself has acknowledged there were a bunch of mistakes made by his campaign. he's not the one setting policy. he's not the one setting the tone for the republican party now. i think what we should talk about is what the rnc did today. they appointed some very no nonsense pragmatic people including our colleague ari fleischer from cnn and also sally bradshaw among the
have commodity, you put the poll up and think back to november 6, obama against romney in florida and romney a terrible candidate, and he got, he lost by less than two points in florida. here she is, winning by 11 points over jeb bush, much more popular in florida than romney has ever been so that tells us it is very much pro hillary clinton and antirepublican and a little antibush but the republicans, the brand, we use the guy's name in the first section, the executive director of the pew poll which is a respected poll, said that the g.o.p. brand is on the verge of being marginalized. if that happens, how do you recover? i don't know. >> if that happens and they cannot do this we will get another party in the country because the democrats are unpopular too. there is a 70's percent, we all talked about this, antiwashington, antipolitical party. someone will fill the void. if the republicans don't do it someone will. >> hillary clinton has to stay as far outside the mainstream of washington, dc, infighting, as possible so resign when slow did was a well timed act, and pat is right:
has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees that politicians make. they end up enhappy with them as well. this is just part of the landscape. >> as history shows the two most extreme candidates in recent times were barry goldwater and george mcgovern and both got hammered. so i think you are right. just real quickly on the ted cruze barack obama front. isn't it interesting that both of their stories revolve around, you know, a rags to riches in america the greatest nation on earth but they both see this country so differently? think really do. don't they. look at the line of work that president obama went into. you know, it was a law professor and a community organiz
about them. so, for instance, mitt romney had this very big focus on the economy, but for the average american, it was tough to see how mitt romney's economic policies would make their lives any better off. i think that's the challenge republicans want to face if they want to be competitive. >> tim, some people would say americans for prosperity is part of the problem. >> not me. . who would say that? >> some people would say that requiring a strict orthodoxy when it comes to no tax increases, that's part of the problem. what's your response? >> in fact, a vibrant, growing, strong movement is a recipe for a party's success, and that movement is outside the party. the democratic party is not that strong. it was the obama campaign, it was george sorros in 2002, 2004. a lot of movement groups on the left that dragged the democrat party along with their energy, with the movement's energy. so i think a strong movement is a good thing. frankly, a not-so-strong party is a good thing. the democrat party is not that strong. it's about the movement, pulling them along. i think that's what we ha
, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you it was going to be big and bold, and i know a lot of people didn't expect it this way. but that's what we delivered this morning. >> certainly did. in fact, i have a copy of it right here, and it's a lot of pages. and the type is pretty small. the font, we should say. let's talk a little bit about what the big problem -- is it a problem of messaging? is it a problem of organization? or is there a substantive policy issue that you have to change? >> well, i think that, you know, here's where i kind of focus in as chairman of the party, and it makes sense. this is where i would first go. and i just think that we h
's plans. this so called autopsy is calling for the gop to shift its focus. >> reporter: after mitt romney lost last november, party leaders, ordered an autopsy on what went wrong. they released the findings in a report called the growth in opportunity project. >> we need to do a much better job crafting our message to appeal to voters from demographics who have not been voting republican. >> reporter: the report says they need to reach out to minorities especially latino voters who overwhelmingly supported president obama. republicans should tailor their message. >>> the message should be we are going to provide, opportunities, without regard to the color of your skin. >> reporter: it urges them to reach out to women. >> marketing politics is like a product you have to use messaging specific to the target to succeed. >> reporter: we asked voters downtown walnut creek. >> the generation my children are growing up and have a much different view of the world than the republican party of you know my generation or the generation before. > republicans are mired in the past i am republican i do
's not conservative. it didn't get its base out in the 2012 election. >> rush is putting the blame on mitt romney who suddenly became a severe conservative after being a moderate republican. let's look at true conservatives in the running for president in 2012. rick santorum, newt gingrich and rick perry. all three made an appearance at cpac. the influential conservative gathering, we believe these are true conservatives. would any of those true conservatives really have beaten barack obama? amy? >> carol, i don't think anybody would beat barack obama. he's a pop culture icon, and he's captain to that generation that all they care about is pop culture. when rush is talking about people being conservative, he's not talking about social issues i don't think. he's talking about somebody fiscally conservative. i come from a red state and i didn't think mitt romney's conservative enough for me, he is for his state. it's all relative. that's what he's talking about. >> maria. >> agree with amy. i don't think that any of the other candidates would have beaten president obama. now, i do agree with rush that
the group called america rising mitt romney's former campaign manager matt rose. carl cameron is live for us in washington. this will be a superpac that will just do research? >> reporter: opposition research as it's called and rapid response. both sides do it. all political parties do it in one way or the other. usually the research of ones a poepb event and pumping it out to the public is done by the state or political parties or individuals themselves. they will be an independent superpac and focus ongoing after democrats to help the republicans on the right go against the liberals on the left this. all came together literally in the same week that the republican national commit lee last week announced its own season autopsy, and urged the formation of a quote, an allied group dedicated solely to research to establish a private archive and public website that does nothing but post inappropriate democratic utterances and information on democrats. in 2012 a couple of democratic superpacs did real damage to mitt romney's reputation and his campaign. republicans have had a couple of superpacs
's development, though, is fascinating. >> it is. i wonder if it played a role in his -- in mitt romney's campaign. i think it might have. >>> next week, the supreme court will consider a challenge to laws that outlaw same-sex marriage. >> actually, i don't think it did. i don't think the romney team wanted to win ohio. >> the woman running -- >> if they'd selected rob portman, they'd win ohio. who wants to win ohio? >> just 1 of 50. >> too constructive. >> ran this selection process, not only said it didn't play a role, but she herself has come out in support of gay marriage. >> who? >> beth myers who ran the selection process. >> but she didn't make the decisions, ran the process. >> she was influential. >> all right. >>> coming up on "morning joe." i'm just telling you -- >> what are you telling us? >> shortsightedness ran that campaign and that would have been it. >> and where can i meet them? >> he's over there with samsung. the end of power players, how the little guys are making waves on the global stage. so let's break down this play. charles? uh, charles couldn't make it. his s
voters. mitt romney doing very well at all with either of those groups. that's why you're seeing this, and $10 million is a lot of money, don. that's why they hope they can make some changes here. >> and if you're in the battleground states, i was in a battleground, you were there as well, they are taking a page out of obama playbook because they were -- they had been in those communities. their ground games were amazing. they knew the people in those communities and they had personal relationships and that's how they won and today reince priebus admitted that as he was announcing that they are going to announce his plan come tomorrow. what will -- what will go beyond voter outreach here in this announcement? will they go beyond voter outreach? what else are republicans planning, paul? >> this is what we think we'll also see in a plan when it comes to a couple other areas where republicans really didn't do well compared to the obama campaign and the democratic party. digit sal one area. they will put a lot of money and manpower into digital to get their message out more effectively, o
to address its problems of getting its message across. this new thinking started after mitt romney's loss to president obama in the november election. so what is the grand plan? mark preston joining us. mark, do you know? they say they don't want to have an image of stuffy old men, is that it? >> that is it. let the recalibration begin, suzanne. you know, you and i have heard this time and time again after every presidential election you hear the losing political party talk about how they need to change their message. but reince priebus, who is the chairman of the republican national committee, suzanne, says that he has really got to recalibrate what they're doing. he spent the last several months right now putting together a proposal that would not only overhaul the mechanics of how republicans pick their presidential nominee, but would also overhaul the message. he's talking about spending $10 million and dedicating that money to put people on the ground, paid workers in the communities such as african-american communities, hispanic communities, to try to recruit voters. they got clobbe
low and really doing a great job. their this is a district south carolina win, that mitt romney won by 18 percentage points. so it will be a tough role for her. >> i will say i think having a woman against him is probably a plus. >> i think you're right. >> i am wondering -- >> there is another thing we haven't acknowledged, which is that perhaps it makes it easier. the rt sof scandal is bluntd a bit by the fact that he married the mistress. it sort of makes that whole thing a little more palatable. >> i found my true love. >> i'm wondering as i thought back about some of these in the past, brad pitt, for example, and angelina jolie, you mentioned -- >> the other connection i made right away. >> tom hanks married rita wilson. and the best of this, the best at this was of course, prince charles and camilla. they managed to change the p.r. around this story so well that the p.r. firm handling them during this time received an award for their work. getting these people back into good favorability numbers. >> if you're right about that, it will be interesting. you think about marrying t
statement, i see this as a deliberate thing that he has said. much the same as when he accused mitt romney of certain things from the senate floor. harry reid has to be called responsible for the statement that he made, and as i've said, he needs to go over to the marine barracks before a formation of marines, standing with the commandant and give an apology and not just have some spokes people from his office do it, cowardly. >> i will say that, you know, that it's with his statement that was issued by his office, if it's-- i find it difficult to say to think it was sort after clumsy statement that he made on the senate floor, other than maybe if his staff was just serving, increasing the problem for him. but i'm curious, i mean, you know, this whole idea of using a tragedy and this is a horrible tragedy, political ammunition, what's happened? >> well, i think that you see a lack of character. we have seen this whole scare tactic being used to, you know, by the administration and even by the president when it comes to sequestration, but to take an event, a tragic event which also happened
last november and yet he really trounced mitt romney. so in addition to the messaging problem that the republican party clearly has, there's also a demographic problem that they face and that's why you had the soul searching. it was necessary not only to reassure the party activists, but also i think to get donors reassured, as well. there was a risk there that some people were going to stop giving money to the republican party. >> when i talked to ari fleischer in our last hour, he said the message that we have to have is that it's a big tent and here's what he said. >> both parties have these issues. for the republican party, what it means is that republicans need to adhere to our conservative message, our conservative core, but do so in a way that invites other people to join in. we can not do it in a way that pushes people out or says they're not welcome. that's been a real republican problem. we give people the impression that they're not wanted. the power of conservative is that it's an attractive position, it should bring people in because it's how you make it, that's h
presidential election, mitt romney and paul ryan both told us that there were trillions of dollars of tax breaks for very wealthy people, they proposed to eliminate them as part of tax reform where they reduced the rate. we say, let's take some of that revenue to help reduce the deficit, combined with other targeted cuts. >> be more specific for me. when you talk about tax loopholes and the very wealthy. which specific loopholes and what is very wealthy? >> sure, sure, these are, when you're in the highest tax bracket, you're in the 39% tax bracket when you get a deduction, whatever it may be for, you get 39 cents worth of deduction. whereas somebody who is in the 28% tax bracket only gets 28 cents deduction for that particular deduction. so what we're saying and this is similar to a proposal the president's put forward, is that for folks who are in that very high bracket, the 39% bracket, the value of your deductions will be limited to about 28% which is what the value of deductions is for a middle income taxpayer. >> so ultimately, the budget that you have there and i just read the litt
. that this is not going to be something we sideline or in the words of mitt romney kicked down the road. >> yeah, that was epic huh? >> hal: holy -- if you want -- let's talk about for a second the perception of the republican party's relationship with israel, and the reality of the democrat's position in their relationship with israel. because republicans ran a guy who did two amazing things during the last campaign. he said openly that's something where you really -- it's never going to be solved and you basically just kick the can down the road and make it the next guy's problem. >> which is an unbelievable thing for a presidential candidate to say about an issue that large. >> hal: especially when you leave a few weeks later to go there to campaign for money. >> and bring donors with you. >> hal: right. and in your sensitivity have your fund raiser on a holiday. remember that? >> yeah. >> hal: they scheduled it on a holiday -- and they were like well -- we'll do it quietly, like we won't serve wine or something. and it's like dude that's not the point! >> no. >> hal: so
, all the way back to lincoln, but today it seems to you have people -- mitt romney day 1 said that he would try to reverse it. in the history of the republican party the republicans have come up with great ideas and new things and people today want to undo that. guest: i appreciate that. what you point out is a fundamental lack of understanding of our own history relative to the things that we as trash or criticize fundamentally being oriented out of the philosophy of the party at that time. the referenced david bacon, talking about the emancipation proclamation, a radical departure from where the country was a the time. you talked about one of my favorites, affirmative action. a lot of republicans will trash that program in a heartbeat not recognizing that it was republicans who created affirmative action. richard nixon during his administration brought together african-american leaders within his administration to put in place a leveling field because he saw that black contractors were not getting a fair deal on federal contract in with their white counterparts. he wanted to create
to play a little bit of governor mitt romney from cpac because he pointed out exactly that. let's listen. >> i would urge us all to learn lessons from come from some of our greatest success stories and that's 30 republican governors across the country. [applause] people like bob mcdonnell, scott walker, john kasich, suzanna martinez, chris christie, brian sandoval, these are the people we have to listen to and make sure their message is herd lout and clear across the country. martha: he said these are people we have to listen to. unfortunately you were not invited to the conference, governor. what do you think about that? >> that's fine. i spoken in the past a couple years. last year i spoke in washington and chicago at cpac. al cardenas is good friend. i spoke to the prayer brake fast on cpac on friday. and our candidate for governor, ken cuccinelli was the lead speaker. one governor is probably enough. no, look it's fine. i think bigger point we need to find a way to do, take the good, solid, conservative message, fiscal and conservative, demonstrate to people why it works. show that g

these debates were destructive to the eventual nominee, mitt romney. they wanted to reform that. >> i think our debate calendar needs to be shrunk. i think we had way too many debates, candidates slicing and dicing each other. i think they had to wait too long to get to the convention. i'm calling for a convention in june or july. >> and there you have it. reince preibus talking about moving up their convention. he's talking about doing that now at the beginning of the summer. it will greatly alter what we're used to in seeing how a presidential campaign operates. >> will front-load the whole process, giving us a few months of intense, intense campaigning. nice to see you this morning. thanks for coming in. >>> later on "starting point" we'll talk about the republican blueprint with ari fleischer. also cnn's jake tapper, whoegs new show "the lead" launches this afternoon at 4:00 eastern time on cnn. he'll be on the show at 8:00 talking about the republican plan. >>> listen up. calling all bracketologists, the field for ncaa men's field is set and the team that won it all a year ago is not even
rob portman, a prominent republican senator who was considered as a running mate for mitt romney has decided he has changed his stance on the issue of same sex marriage. he now supports it after years after being oppose toitd. the reason is very personal. he says he has a gay son and he wants that son to have all the same rights as anyone else when it comes to marriage. what strikes you about this story? >> barry goldwater. it really takes me back. barry goldwater was frankly became sort of a centrist republican and when his nephew came out of the closet and said he was gay, barry goldwater thought the republican party should be inclusive. what happens to these men once it's in my family tolerance starts to look a lot different and when his son will came out that changed things. >> i always like to give the analogy are you for torture or water boarding. no. how about if torture and water boarding would stop your child from dying the next day. of course. we're all ideologues. >> as a lawmaker your actions should be grountded in the constitution of the united states. he should be makin
